You know, the ones they only busted out every once and again.

One of mine is To Lay Me Down. Just listened to 9/18/74... wow. I love when Jer pulls on the ol' heart strings during his solo spot. :')

Edit: Made 'rarity' plural, knowing this crowd.

It became rare in later years but Comes A Time is mine. And altough I never saw it live I really like a rockin casey Jones encore.

I do agree That To Lay me down is great. Beautiful song. I think it got tougher for him to hit those notes vocally in later years. I heard some later versions and I have to turn my head to see if the windows in my house cracked. I kid the big man.

Ah, thanks for the link. Judging by the criteria of that thread, my beloved TLMD doesn't qualify as an obscure number. Just the same, it musta been real special seeing it being broken out after, what, six years? at the Warfield? Man.

And the Warfield version on Reckonings is so, so beautiful, too!

As you can see from the thread, I didn't impose the <10 rule. What would a good threshold be, I wonder? At 64 shows, TLMD would have to be above any threshold for a true rarity, but that one is interesting as it was only played in spurts with longish intervals between, as you say.

I read this list and the link. Nobody mentioned a song I've always loved: How Long Blues. The only version I've heard is from the Euphoria Ballroom acoustic set - 7/14/70. They did an electric version of a song with the same name in the late 80s, but it wasn't the same song.

Keep Rolling By

man, that one is IT.

Standing On the Corner
- which did get played more than once during '66.

Betty and Dupree, Gangster Of Love, Hey Little One, Early Morning Rain, And So We Leave The Castle (TC's musique concrete mixed with thick air midway thru Anthem)...

and they actually improvised random sounds to a tape being played thru the monitors of What's Become Of The Baby on 2-27-69 or was it 2-28-69?...

Interesting, if not a favorite exactly!
